The Fruit and Vege Co-operative provides quality, healthy and fresh fruit and vegetables to the Wellington region, at a low cost.
The fruit and vegetable packs are $12 ($15 in Kapiti for a larger order). The order consists of two bags - one of seasonal fruit (3-4 varieties) and one of seasonal vegetables (3-5 varieties). The estimated retail value of each individual order is often over $20.
Anyone is able to purchase the Co-op bags.
How does it work?
You place your order at least one week in advance and you can order as many packs as you like, whenever you like. There is no commitment to order every week.
Every week, the Fruit and Vegetable Coordinator purchases bulk supplies of healthy seasonal fruit and vegetables. The produce is delivered the following Tuesday or Thursday to the packing hubs. The volunteers help pack the orders ready for pickup or to be delivered to the distribution hubs. The families that placed their orders the previous week are able to pick up their produce packs.
